What is this type of zit?

Recommended Posts

[attachmentid=1028]

Does anyone know what type of acne that is? I've never had this before I got it two days ago. It feels like a bump and has a white head on top of it. Has anyone had any experience with this? When you push down on it , it sorta hurts. It's hard to explain

If anyone has had anything like this, how long does it take to go away ? I apply bp twice a day with moisturizer and I wash my face twice too.

Any help will be appreciated

Looks and sounds like a cyst. Apply lots of BP to it to avoid it getting any bigger or erupting on the surface.

Maybe a week to 2 weeks? Depends on the individual really.

I would add a dab of hydrocortizone cream at night too to speed things along.

Yeah don't pick something like that. Don't even squeeze it down. If your lucky it will shrink and be a small whitehead. I once tried to squeeze stuff out of a big cyst like that....I squeeze puss and blood and white stuff but made it so much worse, took 5 weeks to die. Long time ago so I learned my lesson.

Anyways try the BP on it, also put some warm water on it and maybe some mosturizer on it. Treat it very carefully and make sure you don't irritate it. The better you leave it alone the quicker it will heal (and hopefully no scarring)

Try putting some toothpaste on it before you go to bed, as it reacts to bring down the swelling and redness. It might not work for you but it works for me
